Welcome to The Scarbrough Hotel

Famous for hosting late 19th-century talent nights

You will find The Scarbrough Hotel in Bishopsgate Street Leeds within a short stroll of Leeds Railway Station, Neville Street and Boar Lane - however you won't find another like it.

Step in to discover a traditional pub of unique character, revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its quality pub food, which are served, as they should be, with a generous measure of famous British hospitality.


Our historic pub stands on the site of a mediaeval manor house that was lavishly rebuilt in 1765 as a most desirable residence. Henry Scarbrough took the property in 1826, at which point it became the Kings Arms. In the late 1890s, Fred Wood established The Scarbrough Hotel pub. He organised talent nights here and any act showing promise was put on at his City Varieties.


The Scarbrough Hotel is one of many rare gems in theNicholson's collection of great British pubs, reputed for their distinctive buildings, intriguing history and vibrant atmosphere.
